In the second round, Tuigamala tried to keep his distance and score with punches but Saliba was able to close the distance and clinch up and get a takedown. Saliba moved to mount where he scored with punches. Tuigamala was able to get back to his guard and looked to setup a kneebar, but Saliba used that positioning to transition to an arm triangle and put Tuigamala to sleep with it. Saliba showed off a great set of tools on the ground and proved to be a handful for any future opponent.
